Luke and Lydia had the most wonderful wedding day to celebrate becoming husband and wife while surrounded by their friends and family. I met up with the bride and bridesmaids at Cross Roads Church in Cottage Grove after their hair and makeup appointments on a beautiful Saturday in July. Starting off with the details, Lydia's dress was so soft and romantic and paired perfectly with her suede blue heels. The succulents in her bridal bouquet made for a stunning ring photo, the lines of the engagement ring almost mimicking the shape and qualities of the greenery. The groom even got to wear his grandpa's watch for the big day. Then it was time for everyone to get dressed and for the couple's first look on the sunny day. Luke & Lydia were so happy to see each other, it was such a sweet moment to capture! We took the opportunity to get some portraits of the sharply dressed couple before getting some wedding party group pictures. Then it was time to head inside for the ceremony. As the newlyweds were pronounced husband & wife, the crowd cheered and they left with happy smiles on their faces. Once the marriage license was all taken care of, we headed out to the stunning Carpenter Nature Center in Hastings for the reception. We rounded up the families & wedding party once the cake was cut (with the cutest cake topper ever - perfect for these two pilots!). Before it was time for dinner, we couldn't resist grabbing some bride and groom portraits with a cheerful field of yellow flowers. Dinner provided by The Rack Shack was delicious! (You can't go wrong with beef brisket, pulled pork, and corn bread!) Luke & Lydia then had their first dance as a married couple as the sun began to set, followed by first dances with their parents, respectively. Prior to wrapping up the evening, the best man and man of honor entertained the guests with speeches, full of laughs and advice. Special thanks to my second shooter Emily J. Davis for her help photographing this day. It was such a joy capturing the first official day of the Werner's happily ever after! Congratulations again, Luke & Lydia!
